Where did you serve and what did you do?
I have been in the military for nearly 15 years – having served in the Marine Corps & presently the Navy Reserve. I’m an OEF vet. I am currently stationed a Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine.
How are you #StillServing?
I’m #STILLSERVING as a Chaplain for Maine Veterans Homes in Scarborough, Maine. I specialize in hospice care, death and dying. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been providing support to residents, staff, and family members remotely and via zoom, telephone and FaceTime. I’ve also been available to conduct funerals as well.
Why do you do it?
It is a tremendous honor to serve those who are living and dying. It’s an absolute privilege. It’s taught me a lot about selflessness, love, loyalty, and kindness.
